Windy days in pike kingdom

Hi guys!

So we have now reached the final of main spring fishing season and also the very last day in May. Most anglers have now left us for this time and they did so with variated results. Some boats did good a couple of days ago but it's been some hard days lately with very strong SW winds. Both yesterday and today we have wind squalls up to 18m/s. Not the best conditions for fishing nor boat driving in 5 meter aluminium boats either.

During this week we were visited by returning guests from Belgium. Yannik stayed for a week with friend for their 11th year and as always they caught some decent fish! In total about 150 pikes was caught and the last two days delivered over 50 pikes above 80cm with 4 pikes measuring over the magic meter margin +100cm. Good results since they suffered hard winds most days which makes fishing a bit difficult.

A guided 4 hour trip yesterday was on my schedule with Swedish guests. Mattias and his son had never tried fishing in Karlskrona before and we found some good spots where the pikes seemed to be active. Rain was pouring down and wind was strong but we managed to catch 15 pikes with the top fish measuring 87cm and a few more of almost the same size. Most successful lure this trip was McRubber Jr in Rügen herring colour.

Overall the weekend stay guests had hard fishing due to the weather circumstances but a few nice fish was reported. A few just under the meter margin and many many above 80cm.

Fishing activity will now go down a lot since upcoming weekends are outside of official fishing season and from now on mainly vacation celebraters will be invading Dragsö. Fishing is still very good and due to a cold spring I both think and expect fishing to be good in June as well. For those interested we still have availability upcoming 2 weekends for fishing packages. Are you interested and flexible with vacation break on short notice you can have a great moment! Just contact us on or 0455-15354 for reservations!
